Looks Can Be Deceiving...  
Okay, I came across the following video and thought to myself, "Gee, this looks enchanting". It's an excellent little video. The graphics are incredible, it holds your attention, and it has a catchy musical score. Yet, "enchanting" is not the word I would use to describe this clip. Looks can be deceiving... which is what makes this video even better!

My inaccurate preconceived notions of this video, brings to mind something I've been thinking about lately. I've concluded that I'm spending my life consistently proving myself wrong. What I thought I knew, I didn't. For example, judgments and ideas of things, other people, and even more-so what I thought I knew of myself. What may have been true yesterday, is no longer true today. This is teaching me to not see things in strictly black and white, set in stone. There is an underlying viscousness to life. In the dictionary, viscosity would be described as "the property of resistance to flow". In other words, it's the measure of a fluid's resistance in response to stress. Kind of fitting if you ask me. It's only natural to resist things when under stress. But maybe, instead of resisting change, if we were only to embrace it... things would flow much better. I'll try to accept the gray area of life... and understand that by seeing only black and white, it is the same as looking at life through a microscopic lens. Hard to see the big picture that way.
